There are two main reasons for power going out. First, check to ensure the circuit breaker has not tripped in the main electrical switchboard, then follow the steps below:
- If the circuit breaker is in the “on” position, it means there could be an overload (the demand for electricity has exceeded the capacity of the distribution system to supply it). Switch off or unplug your appliances and reset the circuit breaker. Beware of plugging too many appliances into power boards; this is a common cause of power surges in apartments.
- If step one does not work, you may have a faulty appliance. Switch off or unplug your appliances one-by-one until you have found the culprit. Have the faulty appliance repaired or replace it.
If the first 2 steps are unsuccessful, please Contact Building Manager if the hours are between 8am-4pm (weekdays) or Contact Security (General Building) for after-hour assistance.
